सुख की है चाह तो, दुख भी सहना है…

जीवन के दुखों से, यूँ डरते नहीं हैं

ऐसे बचके सच से गुज़रते नहीं हैं

सुख की है चाह तो, दुख भी सहना है!

Translation:

Do not fear sufferings and run away from the truth in life.

If you want happiness, you should also be prepared to bear suffering.

Treat happiness and suffering as opposite sides of a single coin and accept both.

Easy choices, hard life. Hard choices, easy life…

If we are making the hard choices now then the long-term will be easy.
If we make the easy choices now, the long-term life will be a lot harder.

In what to eat, if we are not eating all the junk food and making the hard choice to work out, then the long-term life will be easy. Won’t be sick. Won’t be unhealthy.

But if we eat junk food, do not work out and take easy choices now, the long-term will be much harder for our body & mind.

The same is true of values.

The same is true of career & goals.

The same is true of saving up for a rainy day.

The same is true of our approach to our relationships.
